New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Soulful Congo-Funk vocalist Elvic Kongolo has released his new single "Our Story," a powerful and emotive track that deals with a dilemma encountered in a relationship. Taking the rhythmic sounds of his homeland and marrying them with his experiences in Europe, "Our Story" is a gentle introduction to his sound, showcasing his soaring, soulful tones with a song about the difficulties encountered within a relationship.

Kongolo is based in Oslo, Norway and creates music inspired by his Congolese heritage. Blending Congolese rhythms with American funk influences, Elvic sings in English, Lingala, French, and Norwegian, though his commitments to music has been tested rigorously since arriving in Norway. Initially wanting to become a musician, he was convinced by his family to study instead, a decision which had disastrous consequences, ultimately finding Elvic reduced to living on the streets. Through the help of others and a burning desire to spread joy through his music, he has found himself performing in front of large audiences thanks to his energetic stage show which has elements of the frenzied performances of James Brown, Fela Kuti and Little Richard.

Elvic himself explains "Our Story":

When I hear "Our story", I picture a beautiful relationship between two people. Their relationship was fantastic, they were in paradise. Unfortunately, their love couldn't conquer the obstacles coming their way and it did not last".

The song is a strong but gentle reminder that we often find happiness by remembering what we have in common with other people, not what divides us.
